Delia Derbyshire

Delia Derbyshire (May 5, 1937 - July 3, 2001) was a pioneer of electronic music. She is perhaps best known for "realising" Ron Grainer's theme to the British science fiction television series Doctor Who at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. Ron Grainer was so amazed by her rendition of his original theme that he attempted to get her a co-composer credit, but this was prevented by BBC bureaucracy.

Some of her most acclaimed work was done in the 1960s in collaboration with the British artist and playwright Barry Bermange[?], for the Third Programme[?] (the radio station which later evolved into BBC Radio 3[?])[1] (http://www.guardian.co.uk/obituaries/story/0,3604,518008,00).
